Refreshingly bitter with lots of flavor up front and a clean finish, this Zero Proof cocktail sets you up for the next sip. If you’d like a sharper edge, add a quarter ounce of lemon juice to elevate the acid. Enjoy!

¼ oz lemon juice, optional
Fill cocktail shaker one quarter with ice. Add cherries (pitted or not) and muddle until well mashed into the ice. Add liquids and more ice, if needed. Shake hard and strain over ice in rocks glass. Garnish with fresh cherry.
